University of Georgia: Band now has practice facility

For the first time in its 104-year history, the University of Georgia Redcoat Marching Band has it own practice facility.

The practice field near the intramural fields off College Station Road in Athens, Ga., was dedicated last week.

Previously, the band has practiced on the same field used by the football team.

The new facility will allow the band more rehearsal time.

Intramural activities will be allowed on the field.
